“NWRVR is a compost heap of all my experiences – all the things that matter to me. I wanted to make something that translated how I feel on the inside, onto the outside. So that’s what I tried to do. I think the music on the EP is basically about life. And as I only know about life from my own experience of it, it’s just that. People, politics, my head, the earth.” River

Introducing NWRVR… the creative project of 17-year-old multi-faceted musician River Codrington.

First starting to write music as NWRVR in 2019, the project was sparked by River’s inquisitive nature of teenage curiosity.

Exploring issues from identity to climate change, and expressed through the disciplines of music and art, Jan 4th 2019 saw NWRVR enter the studio with producer and founder of ‘90s cult band Sneaker Pimps, Liam Howe, who has worked with names including Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Marina and the Diamonds, Tom Vek, Jessie Ware, Adele, FKA Twigs among others.

Constantly writing and recording, NWRVR returned on April 22nd 2021 to mark World Earth Day with a new two track single Hypochondriac which was crowned BBC Radio Introducing Suffolk’s ‘Track Of The Week’.
